J1 waiver and DS2019 expiration date.

Hi All!
Thank you in advance for maintaining this platform.
I entered US on J1 visa. I filed for asylum last year. I am subjected to 2-years home residency because I was funded by my home-County government.
My question, when should I apply for J1 wavier based on persecution? My DS2019 will expire soon. Does this matter since I am staying on Pending Asylum status?
Thank you!

I’m curious - persecution by the same government that funded your studies in the US, or by another group in your country
